Authomate Inc is pleased to announce that Strong Pass for IOS, the easiest to use password management app, is now available worldwide. The app has been redesigned for IOS7 and will let you to manage unlimited logins/passwords. The Android App and additional security tools will follow soon. With Strong Pass, you can login to your favorite sites with just a wave of your smartphone.

With a unique approach to authentication, Strong Pass is a blend of strong security and ease of use. One scan of the webpage, the user will be authenticated instantly. With Strong Pass, there is no need for you to remember any passwords. Your credentials are safe when you use Strong Pass.

Existing password management solutions keep a copy of your password database on each machine you use and synchronize them, thereby making your credentials more vulnerable to hacking and identity theft. Some keep your credentials in the cloud. Strong Pass on the other hand keeps your passwords very safe. Your credentials are not stored in the cloud or on Authomate servers. They are stored on your smart phone under multiple layers of strong encryption. No one else can access your data, even if you lose your phone. Although Authomate Authentication server takes part in the authentication process, your credentials are never visible to anyone else including Authomate.

Authomate Strong Pass uses bank level security to ensure your credentials are safe from prying eyes of hackers and not prone to theft. You can rest assured that your credentials are safe and secure.

Use browser to save passwords? STOP NOW !

personal-data-digital-worldWe live in a digital society. We watch movies, read, edit, share documents, text and video-chat online. We read our emails online as well as manage our bank accounts online using a browser right from the comforts of our home. And to do all that we all have to have a plethora of accounts with services providing the tools for us to enjoy our digital lives. The reality is that an average individual has well over 20 online accounts and has to keep these accounts safe and secure by picking good passwords and remembering them when needed.

I am sure you are no exception. There is also a very high chance that you use the builtin password manager that comes with most browsers today. The builtin password managers in IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari make the password management a lot easier by saving your login and other basic information and fill in the login and other forms automatically. But while they make our lives easier, they are not secure at all. In recent times a lot was written about chrome and its lack of security with respect to your password repository (click for more details) it maintains in its password manager. And why just talk about chrome, when none of the browsers can protect their saved passwords from prying eyes (click for more details).

Here is the bottom line – If you want to keep your passwords and other credentials secure and also create strong passwords to all your online accounts, you MUST use a good password manager that it not built in to your browser. A good password manager MUST provide tools for creating strong passwords and help replace the weak passwords in our online accounts. A good password manager MUST ensure that the password it keeps are secure. It MUST also ensure that the user can use the password manager anywhere he/she goes. There are a lot of free password managers available. I do not have anything against free services and tools, but one MUST remember that you have to pay for things in one way or another.

The key question you MUST answer before you sign up for a free service for password management is “are you really willing to depend on a free software to protect the keys to your digital world ?”.

It is time to stop using browsers to save your passwords and get a good password manager NOW !
